When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group’s future suddenly hangs in the balance: suppressed emotions, competing egos, and uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, only their intimate bond and the power of music can preserve their legacy.

Intense, thoughful performances from an ensemble cast Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener, Mark Ivanir, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Imogen Poots. Watch the trailer…
